Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: I'm kind of disappointed

Thanks, and well said. I admit my drunken attempt at humor was not the most tasteful of things to post. I guess I am into George Carlin a little too much for most folks. After a while Direwolf and myself apparently dropped it (wink, wink, nod, nod, know what I mean?). It should have never gotten that far and then trying to post replies on here sometimes they get out of sequence and it looked like I was starting shit back up but if you look at the time stamp I stopped being hostile... I was actually laughing the whole time and I believe Direwolf was too. That original story was true but I had 2 shows mixed up. I did leave a funeral and go to a show but that was not the balloon show. It must have been around 95, well after the other show which was probably around 91 or 92. Can anyone help with the dates? I went to about 10 or 20 shows and honestly cannot remember the dates.. Just because I never put a sticker on my car (cops know what's up) doesn't mean I was not cool.

And if you cannot laugh at death you cannot laugh at life.

You are right man - we did carry that whole thing way too far and people got kinda pissed at both of us. But like you, I was laughing at the whole thing. Glad you had a smile too. Still disagree with a couple of comments you made, but that is what forums are for, right? Glad we could drop it and now can move on from there. No hard feelings i hope.

No hard feelings... good to see someone else with balls actually... and my sense of humor is rarely uniformly interpreted correctly... I loved my grandfather and he was the closest thing to a dad I had. My grandmother knows my sense of humor, I took her to see the south park movie... not one of her favorites but she got the joke... she was giving me dirty looks the whole time... then we made love... just kidding... see? that to me is funny... not for everyone though I suppose, such is life.

Fair enough, I'll try not to bash extreme self proclaimed Muslims, though I have no room for them, as I have no room for extreme Christians either. Words and how I interpet them and how others interpet them are always a challange in a forum Vs a verbal conversation. I'm being profiled wrongfully and thats hurtful (sniff-sniff) :(

your comments on abortion last week really raised my ire. one can only count 10 for so long before blowing a gasket. try for a moment and put yourself in the shoes of the average iraqi ( a shoe salesmen, a baker, a farmer) who do THEY think are the religous extremists? 50 000, civilans dead and for what? because your god is bigger than their god? i have no problems with agreeing to disagree. i just wish you would offer your racial, political and religous opinions on the other forums archive.org has to offer and not this one.

for the sake of the group, lets both tone it down and focus on the tunes. ok?

peace.

Well I'm kind of disappointed too. We've gone round the political issues before and agreed to disagree on the subject. There are those of us who could give a flying fuck about 50,000 dead Muslims, wishing it were a drop in the bucket as some kind of genocide appears to be the only real solution for the woes that seem to never go away in the Middle East. (Not my opinion, just ask a jihadist.)

I don't really care why we're over there, lets just define our objectives, finish the job and get the fuck out. Y'all can whine on about the who's - what's and why's of the situation, but if you haven't figured it out, that's spilled milk. We're there, we've been there, and we're going to be there - until we ain't no longer.

As for the smarmy fucking libs that got thereselves elected on the basis of generating hatred for the current administration, y'all better show us something other than your ability to raise a bitch and complain. I'm not hearing any solutions to the probelems we face coming from that direction...only the sound of oozing blood from the throat cutting you're giving each other in the quest for power. "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."

Disappointed, sick and tired of it.

I don't even think we know what our objectives are any more over there. If I see one more body bag being placed on an airport tarmac, I think I'm gonna scream!! enough is enough. It can't be for oil anymore (like i used to think during the first iraqi "war"). C'mon, we're not the only buyers of their oil, but if it weren't for our gluttonous consumption, those leaders would be sucking camel piss out of straws rather than lounging about in palaces.

And now we get our "new government" (cough) - that has even less of a fuckin clue what to do with the whole deal - "well, we can't quite leave the battle yet, but that's what we wanted the voters to think." (assholes)

Oh, the humanity. (Sniffle Sniffle.) I think it's a relatively poor idea to bring politics on the boards, but if you think I'll sit idle while you're shitting on my country, you got another thing coming. I suppose to you, the 200,000 to a quarter million Iraqui citizens that silently lay dead from a murderous opressive regime do not count?

So what's the new boss going to do about the body count in the Sudan? Nothing, because it's not politically expedient to do anything. There's no security threat, there's no oil to be had, and war is bad for us, but AOK for those tribal thugs to commit genocide. Besides, it's not our job to police the world. But, Ian, what about the dead citizens in the Sudan. What would you have us do?

George Bush certainly fucked up his handling of Iraq. Our government does not have the ability to understand that democracy is a long way from government by tribal murder as it has been for millenia in Iraq. We cannot force our ideaology onto a country barely hatched from the stone age. Their religious customs will not allow it and they're willingness to kill for power prevents it.

....and when their oil runs out in 30 years, they'll be rocketed back into the stone age for failing to build an infrastructure worthy of our times.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: I'm kind of disappointed

Here's what I know. You my friend are anti-war. I am not pro war. Iraq is what it is, and all I want to see is us getting out. I am a capitalist, but I see no profit coming from Iraq, unless you work for the United Nations. Once there, I say do the job, obtain the objective and withdraw.

Once bungled, I see the office seekers making political hay from the mishandling of the war. Being duly elected, they profitted from the ineptness of others and the peoples frustration with the situation. Fair enough so far?

Given that they were elected fairly, do I now have the right to expect them to play a role in ending the conflict? I've seen the Democratic leadership, namely Pelosi and Howard Dean wash their hands of that responsibility less than 24 hours after the election. The end of the war was their mandate for change. It was their political platform. They immediately shunned their part in the quid pro quo. If you voted as a statement of protest against the war, I would call it nullified. (That, by the way is not an attack on the Dems, it is fact.)

As for tne Iraqui infrastructure, it was most certainly there and in place. We paid for it by fueling our evil Volkwagen Bus SUV's with Iraqui oil. Ronald Reagan was, in fact, and ally to Saddam. Even took part in holding Saddam's coat while he went of to scuffle with the evil empire of Iran. The root cause of our illustrious history in Iraq, since we forgot to pay back the foreign aid owed to them. (Along with the League of Arab Nations.) It doesn't pay to be a Persian in the Arab world.

Nevertheless, the question remains as to how Iraq moves forward. Do the warlords of Islamic fundamentalism gain power, or the leaders of more moderate sects? The country seems to grasp politics by intimidation and violence, so which way will it go?

As for your chronic thoughts regarding the 50K civilians dead, let's pick one of three choices. 1. How many dead or unknown political casualties if Saddam remains in power and nothing ever happened. 2. How many dead from the international embargo placed on Iraq by the United Nations? 3. How many dead in the upcoming civil war (not my term, see liberal media) for political power?

It's your issue, I'm looking forward to some constructive answers.

iraq is not just MY issue, at this point it's everyones and if it isn't, it damn well should be! a nations reputation is built over time, but as we've clearly seen, it can be sullied in a heartbeat (or a term and a half).

when i left the forum yesterday, my assignment was to address the crisis in darfur. now, after reading your most recent post, i realize that was only part of it - i have my work cut out for me. quickly, the election. i don't understand your attitude of we (rep.) broke iraq, now you (dem) fix it and pronto! what scares you about a new face with potentially new ideas? it's been what, all of 2 weeks? hard to clean up 6 years of hun like foreign policy. then tack on names like mark foley, tom de lay, and jack ambromoff and boy! they made it a hell of a lot easier for the dems. you also mentioned 'obtaining anobjective' please...the world is waiting... what is your objective?

a poster, willowgorden, had expressed his/her frustration with the recent run of non musical subject matter, i'm sure he/she is not in the only person feeling that way. i would be more than willing to continue this conversation off-list if you wish.

Ian. This thread is dead, so I'll continue at the risk of offending probably no one.

1. "Objective" is a military term, and it means to identify your goals. This if you'll recall is something the 'repubs toasted Clinton for in Kosovo and since turn about is fair play, Bush is receiving his fair share. I said fair.

Nonetheless, other than an immediate pullout as recommended by Dem John Murtha, no other newly elected official has come forward to attempt to define their strategy to achieve a suitable exit from Iraq. (Read exit as objective.) Murtha was then snubbed for majority leader by his own party.

Instead of receiving a constructive answer regading moving ahead to solve the problems we have in Iraq, you chose to return to pre-election spin and (rightfully) snub the "bad" republican incumbents who were (again rightfully) voted out.
Not a solution, but follows in lock step with the media and party line.

As for the Sudan, neither you or I have the answer. My wager is that it is not politically expedient or beneficial for either party to become engaged. From what I understand, however, is that we are attempting to get a multi-national peacekeeping force engaged, without benefit of US troops. My illustration was hypothetical, and goes to your obvious and ongoing concerns regading the citizens of a war ravaged country. How do you intervene without bloodshed?

That same concern was reason for my final list of questions, which remained unanswered. Which scenario that I listed, all valid, would be or have had the least amount of casualties in Iraq. Continued governance by Saddam? Ongoing boycott by the UN? The civil war that looms ahead?

Since you rejected my premise that the country is incapable of democratic rule, due to their tribal and religious history...is peaceful democratic elections the way to move forward? If so, how would it have been possible without the intervention and unseating of Saddam?

BTW. The news reported that over 100 Iraqui citizens were killed today. No mention whatsoever that US Forces were responsible for a single death.

Thanks guys. I feel a lot better. :)
I can't tell you how upset I was at the two of you 'fighting'.

anyway how about a question...
This will tell me a lot about you, and anyone else who answers... and it will help me with my quest for my collection and trading...

you're on a desert island. You can only have one dead show with you. which is it?

I would splice 10-13-68 & 9-19-70 to make one complete show (ie, DS from 70, not 68, etc). Cheating? Sorry.

nice choice William Tell, and i will borrow your idea, and come close to your suggestion and choose 10/12/68 (both shows are brilliant but the jam out of Drums wins over 10/12), and splice in the JG+MS show from The Lions Share, 1/19/72! Happy, happy solitude on my desert isle.

although it may not necessarily be the "best" show ever (subjective concept anyways), i would have to go with 09/18/87 - my favorite and most emotionally affecting Morning Dew ever!! Just a "grate" second set all round - so many essential shows, but i don't think i could live without that second set if i could only bring one.

Nice choice! I was at this run! didn't make it this nite, but was there for both 9-19 and 9-20! The garden was THE place for seeing a show! You stepped outside to complete craziness on all levels! I have the 18th and 20th , but still need 9-19-87. Anyone got a nice copy and want to trade with me...CDR?

Yes, you are right--makes me think there is more to post 71 than I thought. Dew is indeed excellent, and I already have turned a few onto Watchtower and they love it.

Thanks again.

I would have to say it was the show with the balloons... hopefully someone can ID it. Meadowlands or JFK? Sun had just set and they went from space into Baba O'reilly... That was one of the coolest concerts I ever attended... It was 91 or 92 and it was in the summer time, that's all I know. I looked for it here but couldn't find it. Anyone have any ideas?

Cool... Maybe it was just an extended intro. I had shitty seats and was seeing colors seperated into the different wavelengths at the time but I specifially remember the rush in the crowd when they realized the seemingly chaotic ambient sounds had morphed into the Who cover and the crowd went nuts. I'll search for it becuase it is worth hearing again. Thanks for the info!
